Just putting this out there, but if I schedule a game with someone and you are not going to make it on time, some sort of notification would be nice.
I just hurried home from work for my game with Snakemaster because we agreed on a 7 pm MST start. Got home and sent a message that I was ready when he was and 20 minutes later got a message back that he would be able to play at 8 pm.
I get that things come up and there are plenty of totally legitimate reasons to postpone a video game but some sort of heads up would be nice.
I actually had the same problem in my game against him. He picked the latest time I could play. And when I got on...he was playing Halo. I messaged him, and didn't get a response for about 15 minutes. When he did respond, he told me to give him 5 minutes.
I'm really not a fan of this. It makes me inclined to advise his opponents to show up 20 minutes later than the agreed upon time, but then Snakemaster could just do the same thing. We're all adults here...and we should all be able to show up when we say we're going to. It's disrespectful to keep people waiting with no notification. I know things come up sometimes, but if it starts becoming a trend, then we have a problem. Hopefully it won't be an issue for anyone else.
